From a plugged-in reader happily ensconced in San Francisco’s Visitacion Valley:
Nine safe years in my 1907 Victorian across 101 on Goettingen Street. Bay Views, Mountain View, ten minute walk to McLaren Park, one of the city’s most under-appreciated amazing parks.
The demographic of [Visitacion] Valley, which is just over the highway from 101, is diverse in a way you find in few SF neighborhoods. And so much change is afoot in this neighborhood. Yes, we are lacking the services I’d like to see, but it’s remarkable how the dark and scary attitude about southeast SF is shared by folks, generally living north of Cesar Chavez, that have never bothered to explore the area.
The city is only about 160 years old, and change is coming–what Cortland avenue on Bernal was 15 years ago will be Leland Street in Vis Valley in not too many years.
